1:05 pm
it's a really high risk for syrians to be injured and killed and that's why we saw in the pitofsky district that civilians were being killed by these kinds of rockets we were able to by looking at the creators looking at the direction from where the rockets were coming. walls that were hit by these rockets so if it's if the rocket hits the western wall of the building it's coming from the west by doing that we were being were able to establish where the attacks were coming from in for attacks they were coming from areas under the control of the ukrainian army so in four of these attacks in the nets which killed sixteen civilians we believe that the ukrainian army was responsible for those attacks we are calling human rights watch is calling on both the ukrainian government and on separatist forces to immediately stop using grad rockets these kinds of indiscriminate weapons
1:06 pm
in populated areas and the ukrainian government should also investigate these cases where there are where there is reason to believe that ukrainian government forces were responsible for for the killing of civilians and both sides are denying the use of granite weapons or the use of at least the use of rhetoric and seen in populated areas. that our evidence is quite clear and the ukrainian government should investigate and should immediately stop the use of these weapons in populated areas. also this week more than forty ukrainian troops abandoned their positions on cross the border into russia some of them have reportedly asked for russian citizenship the soldiers say they are fed up with waging war against the room people meanwhile those with injuries are now being treated in russian hospitals. ukrainian military has also launched attacks on local militia near the malaysian plane crash site the fighting is preventing international teams from

1:09 pm
a family that's restaurant was part of the very fabric of the community this family is so within the whole community wouldn't a whole city so everybody knows someone here has been coming here for years so you're quite shocked restaurant owners profiled in jenny died in the crash alone with ms lois mother and sweet for only this son kevin wasn't on the plane now he's left pick up the pieces you can imagine how big a loss he's lost his parents his grandmother. works in the restaurant also. hope he can manage to. go on like you spend state outside the asian gorge restaurant floral tributes by all of those who knew the family it concerned more with making the dead wrist than these national climate about investigating the tragedy the main thing is that we took the bodies home returned sorry good bye to their own the proper way ultimately what memorial
1:10 pm
services like the one going on behind me show that even in its darkest hour the people of the netherlands are coming together to show that they stand as one peter all of a polity. on a streaming couple who lost their daughter in the mh seven crash have become the first family to visit the site of the tragedy and be insisted on going to the crash scene despite warnings of combat in the area their twenty five year old daughter was an early space engineering student and had hoped to become a pilot the first thing then b. then b. you heard this he said. you should so vive he said how do we sell my feet if we promise al it we have promised our daughter will come here that it is actually as soon as possible does the time factor because he should have come here the minute it happened the next day the probe has yet to establish the coals of the disaster
1:11 pm
but it's widely thought the m.e. at seventeen flight was shot on by a missile. defense ministry has presented its information on the crash publishing satellite images on radar tracking data from a let's take a look. ses it is detected another aircraft in the same path as the malaysian plane on it was bearing the part of a ukrainian military jet however key have claims all of its planes were on the ground at the time plus satellite images show ukrainian rocket launching system in the area just days before the crash but on the same day as the tragedy was partly moved to an unknown location russia's the france ministry is still waiting for comments on the information it has released we haven't received any from ukraine or from the trees to really come into our own poor simple causes for the disaster with more still their comments based on what you will from social media
1:12 pm
the u.s. sees the malaysian airliner was done by a surface to air missile launch from territory controlled by local militia and it's also blaming russia for aiding forces washington has yet to reveal the evidence it claims it has on its been coming under increasing pressure from some media over its munting accusations towards moscow. like you know what you're basing this new evidence that the russians intend to send any heavier equipment based on some intelligence information i can't get into sources and methods behind it but i was able to be able to tell you that is there a you tube video or something that you could point to that i mean you know and he can go and i'm just wondering if you what what what it is i just said i wasn't going to give you the underlined source story but he did use like you know to love me whether it's not with us you're right i don't give you more information just say no i think you make the source not actually ask you a question here i can't give you the source or method would you prefer i not give you the information theory i think that it would be best for all concerned here in
1:13 pm
the other question you know when you make an allegation like that you're able to back it up with something more than just because i say so. washington's accusations were picked up by many news outlets laying the blame for the crash directly up the russian president's door artie's gynae chicana has been monitoring the media storm . the media coverage in the west has been largely slanted against russia public opinion of course response to that kind of coverage of accent i meant is that russia is probably involved and if involved they're probably going to cover it up that's where the public sentiment is and the c.n.n. poll the american people got it right in terms of who's to blame here folks fifty one percent said russians and directly involved only the stakes are high whoever shoulders the blame for this atrocity is going to be the target of global anger and right now it looks like it's russia's fault because. it's russia's fault. it's quite clearly the latest twist in this propaganda war the russians through that
1:14 pm
ambassador here in kuala lumpur presenting. to the malaysian media there are also been attempts to discredit russian sources of information c.n.n. put out a breakdown of what he called russia's propaganda the first item on the list it says the russian take passengers were already dead when put aboard the m h seven team but when you follow the link on this page it has an article in russian which reviews all the apparently quote unquote fake fur and conspiracy theories that are out there that's what the article says specifically about the theory that the bodies were dead before the crash it says literally then there is information which is simply impossible to believe c.n.n. presents it and calls it the russian take it is not the russian take in the same breakdown right after this dead bodies theory c.n.n. puts russian defense officials showing evidence that ukraine had the capability to shoot down the plane moscow is now saying ukraine did it showing evidence that it
1:15 pm
had the capability to do it contrary to what kiev is now saying that claim is brushed off as propaganda that information is now politically charged on all airwaves it seems many journalists have already handed down their verdict in washington i'm going to check on our team. coming up here on international israel and hamas trade ceasefires a palestinian militant group sees its ready for another day long humanitarian transport reports say it's still poised to use rockets israel's already started its bombardments after the previous agreement was breached i'll be bringing you the full story after a short break. as the media leave us so we leave that maybe. i will see motions for the. play your part of the musical. push use that no one is asking with the guests that you
1:16 pm
deserve answers from it's all on politics only on our t.v. . government system is to help poor people poor women but you can only change their life and nobody is trying to make money out of them those who want to make money out of them by misusing. the time the whole thing and to loan sharking did it and we had opal still.
1:17 pm
talk about to the program true staffers from hamas and israel seem to be falling apart with both sides feeling to reach an agreement and continuing to trade accusations the previous u.n. brokered humanitarian truce ended when a barrage of rockets were fired by hamas into this really territory the mosque then said no humanitarian ceasefire would be followed without is really time to withdrawing an ambulance is being able to freely move around in gaza but israel still insists it won't finish its operation until it's demolish the underground tunnel networks foolishly or as more from jerusalem. there were rockets fired from gaza at israel in the early hours of sunday morning several were intercepted over the same into the country and they have been sirens sounding both in the same to and in the south of israel there was also an israeli soldier that was killed by
1:18 pm
a mortar shell not far from the israel gaza border that the israeli military fatalities to some forty three now one of this follows a cease fire that was of zero on saturday by both sides that ceasefire was a u.n. grow could manage tarion truce and it enabled aid workers to bring much needed emergency supplies into the gaza strip as you know hospitals there for example has practically run out of medicine it was also a chance for people inside gaza to return to their homes to try and salvage what little they could to bury the dead and also to recover bodies we haven't yet had any official reaction from israel as to this latest cease fire put forward by have nots so we are waiting to hear what the israelis have to say but what they have said is that they believe that the number of rockets that hamas and islamic jihad have at their disposal has decreased dramatically because of this israeli operation and they also believe that the israelis will be forced to remain inside the gaza strip because they. say militants in gaza will try to hold on to the remaining
1:19 pm
awesome though and extend the fighting in the gaza strip for quite some time so it certainly doesn't look as if he even on the ground as if we're going to see a cessation of hostilities anytime soon one of our correspondents enters a video taken from the heart of the worst hit areas in the strip it does contain some graphic images. of what we're doing now. we're going to move. on we're going to. these pictures for sure among the podiums of the steroid residential go this is thought to be the target of israeli government gunfire the mom appears to be searching for cover when a bullet hits him while he stretched out on the ground we talked to an eyewitness all very consistent this is. the space of the day all together there with full shots fired the first one missed him but the remainder three were aimed to him the
1:20 pm
second one was fatal. which caused him to fall down and on the ground and the third one was i guess for them to make sure that they had got to him basically he was as far as we are aware he was looking for his family he was frantic he was he was leading the way he was on the floor and he knew the enemy we had wanted to do was find. resulted in his day there was supposed to be a cease fire as well however as we said into the region there was bombing nearby there was shelling nearby and snipers shooting this. israel says incessant rocket fire from gaza during the truce caused it to relaunch its offensive my colleague paul score talked to paul here sion a spokesperson at the israeli foreign ministry he explained why his country is not backing down. they say that all. should be investigated and i agree and i'll tell you what we're going to discover we're going to discover that israel has
1:21 pm
taken unprecedented steps in in a very difficult circumstance to minimize and to avoid civilian casualties and we're going to discover that hamas evil machine with a killer strategy. is perpetrating war crime of the war crime of the war crime and that's what we're going to discover you say that israel is doing all it can to minimize civilian casualties are you doing enough for boys killed in a bitch we're hearing about civilians being killed every single day we said repetitively we said it also quietly through diplomatic channels quiet will be altered with quiet calm will be responded to with this message was rejected out of hand they've been three cease fire proposals one by the egyptians one by the united nations one by the international committee for the red cross all three we accepted unconditionally we implemented them all three of which with the with the glib laws they couldn't care less attitude rejected and violated so i agree with you the this is a real tragedy the responsibility for which lies directly at the doorstep of hamas
1:22 pm
. missing in action held at gunpoint and deported it all happened this week to you kate journalist and r.t. contributor graham phillips he was detained in ukraine by security forces held in captivity for three days and then kicked out and barred from the country for three years he told us what else he had to go through during his detention. they were sending messages from my phone that message that you go r.t. saying all these fine i didn't i didn't send that message they were going through my messages asking me about every single message who sent this to you who is this person how do you know this person was put in a room next to an artillery positions they were firing heavily from that was being fired on i was kept in a cellar was detained along with another journalist for dean who was beaten in front of me i saw soldiers you know kick him in the face and then a soldier said if you can confirm my details and he couldn't guarantee that i was
1:23 pm
going to live i was blindfolded kept in a cell without water or toilet facilities and then we were separated i was interrogated i was interrogated all day i was called a terrorist and i was told i had a russian passport i was a russian spy they were telling me all day that i had entered ukraine through ukraine and entered it through russia it's all completely goodly falsely accusing me of working for terrorists and all these accusations and interrogations and then they took my computer they took my things and i've just go are just recently been released and i was on the train to warsaw coming from the polish border and i just recently discovered that the now all of my accounts have been hacked so i want you to recount my e-mail account my you tube account which is obviously money in livelihood some of these deleted two thousand videos from back to every single account i have facebook contact the time that ukrainian forces have had my computer it was held by the s.p. use well they've taken out they've stripped all the passwords basically been
1:24 pm
cyberattacks and i'm just fighting now to try and get my life back i mean being kicked out of the country of ukraine my car was taken by the ukrainian military my money was taken my bullet proof vest i've been deported from a country i own a flat in told i'm an enemy of the state and all i ever did there was report the news which report the truth and i've been told i've been obviously banned from for three years kicked out of the border and then i've been cyberattack so basically you know my entire life has been has been taken apart i mean thankfully i'm alive and as you can see how effective your i but i'm a little shell shocked by the whole experience of just trying to kind of get my bearings and get things back together after what was an ordeal. at the time when philips went missing ukraine's security forces said they had no information regarding his whereabouts they're also adamant that the military does not detain reporters and not on the country it worked to create safe conditions for them here's what the spokesperson of ukrainian security services had to say. what i know
1:25 pm
has been taken hostage there is no information on those were boats or whether there is a bounty on his heard the ukrainian military don't apprehend journalists. but later kiev admitted to detaining and interrogating philipson he told us his life was threatened here's what he claimed was part of a conversation he had with the ukrainian security officer. c s cazalet designedly. not into this area that he wouldn't what do. you really don't know we'll. move on you know he. may need more tickets but i thought i wanted needed just for you to operate normally you could put in the for you to be a new guy that you can indeed to. do you think you're going to be an easy thing to do anything with me to do what he. did. but
1:26 pm
i still didn't want to move to leave it there with my family knew that my. interrogations were also recorded on video part of which surfaced in the ukrainian media after graeme was released. evelyn you're freelance journalist control it way of it so is this little more you both are like an overseer today. who have a look at all except the brand new it is news for something a lot of the. canal press here today we are stringer. received today to get to work an hour to sit in this newsgroup what a freelance. entity and the obvious conclusion of each yes no be skinny and see who is yet to receive today see more security objectively see the studious what truly is most of to mickey to do or objectively could be fairly useful to society it's received today is mostly true nick is. at the objective me
1:27 pm
a star citizen and in your movie a new producer do not receive it today it cannot help you is not a hollow she a day between the two of you. and the ocean advise you to crystallize the only. i'll be back with more updates from around the globe at the top of the hour until then take a look at how the news is made here on our team traditional. a friend of mine flew in from germany and he said that as he was leaving he looked in to do stand at the airport and on the front page of twelve german publications were basically titles like tunes missile destroyers airplane alluding to the crash malaysian airplane that fell into the combat zone in eastern ukraine this isn't
1:28 pm
just some fluke that my friend saw all these newspapers together the entire mainstream media has made the same bold speculations i think this is interesting for two reasons one the way that the mainstream press jumped onto the story with exactly the same headlines and exactly the same angles really makes me want to start believing in conspiracy theories especially when an investigation had been conducted yet there wasn't any formal evidence yet but from fox to c.n.n. to medium sized german newspapers the speculation of who was at fault for the crash is identical and absolute and to the western media which feels justified to push for war with anyone who doesn't adopt western values have themselves completely forgotten just what those values are i thought in the glorious west everyone gets a fair trial with due process evidence and a conviction only after their guilt has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt but when enemies of washington need to be demonized i guess all those principles just fly right out the door but that's just my opinion.
1:29 pm
in the nice today amid signs of montoya for a worthless secret pastry shop i am many many hospitals to hospitals red square still strangers refuse to release an arcade saying it's a what if scenario see the grim souls. we are in a surrogate mother.
